A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell

Trials and tribulations tend to squeeze the artificiality out of us, leaving the essence of what we really are and clarifying what we really yearn for.

It is better to trust and sometimes be disappointed than to be forever mistrusting and be right occasionally.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on god, possibility, trust, and yielding

It is only by yielding to God that we can begin to realize His will for us. And if we truly trust God, why not yield to His loving omniscience? After all, He knows us and our possibilities much better than do we.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on christ, eternity, existence, fatherhood, god, history, jesus, kindness, lies, life, misery, purpose, suffering, and understanding

It is one of the great ironies of human history that some mortals with incorrect understanding of God and life's purposes sometimes scold God because of the abundance of human misery and suffering-which, indeed, lies all about us. Such individuals almost dare God to demonstrate His existence by straightening things out-and at once! But He is a much different kind of Father than that. Surely it is requisite to eternal life that we come to know God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent (see John 17:3).

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on justice

in

The Lord knows our bearing capacity, both as to coping and to comprehending, and He will not give us more to bear than we can manage at the moment, though to us it may seem otherwise. Just as no temptations will come to us from which we cannot escape or which we cannot bear, we will not be given more trials than we can sustain.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on anger, existence, failure, god, learning, and people

C. S. Lewis pointed out that some people are angry with God for His not existing, and others for His existing but for failing to do as mortals would have Him do. Instead of such childishness, we are urged to know God and to learn of His attributes.
